Microsoft Server2012 R2 Internet printing


  • I have been struggling for weeks even months to figure out what could be the problem.

    Im running internet printing on my windows server 2012 R2 machine. Set up iis and installed certificates, installed and configured the printers with print management. Adding the printer from another network works 100% and i can print successfully.
    The problem starts over a couple of days ,the PC cant reach the printer anymore. The printer is online and i can ping it etc. I have to remove the printer from the print manager (print server) and then i have to add it again BUT, it will only work if i change the name to something else. I've changed the name probably around 5 times already . I tried adding it using the printer IP,but that wont work. 

    Any advise  on how to make it stop loosing connection to the printer will be much appreciated 

    Thank you
